Solange AzaguryPartridge Real Fake gold ring with green plique-à-jour $4,400, at eshop. ot one but two important productions representing iconic decades in fashion take their bow this month: The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute unveils "Punk: Chaos to Couture" to the public May 9, and Baz Luhrmann's blockbuster take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby premieres in theaters the next day. At once, we're inspired by both the wealth and sophistication of the roaring '20s and the chaos and anarchy of the '70s punk scene — and we're not the only ones. This season, designers from classic Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers to the more eccentric Prada toasted Gatsby's A WARNER BROS. PICTURES RELEASE. PHOTO COURTESY WARNER BROS. PICTURES Daisy Buchanan with drop-waist dresses, diamond headbands and tennis-inspired separates. But design houses Versace, Chanel and Givenchy found inspiration in punk — à la Lisbeth (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) — a bit goth, definitely edgy and very couture, just like the star who plays her in the film, the dark and moody-in-her-own-right Rooney Mara. Mara, by no coincidence, is one of the chairmen of the Met's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" Costume Institute Gala, which leads off the opening of the exhibition of the same name. While one might not find much fashionably in common between Daisy and Lisbeth, we can find a bit of them both in us — and, subsequently, in our closets.

"THEY WERE CARELESS PEOPLE, TOM AND DAISY iffany & Co. was at the center of the party scene during the 1920s, its jewels worn by such famous Gold Coast names as Astor, the Vanderbilt and Morgan.
